The accident comes at the same time as the actress is in the middle of filming a reboot of Mad About You with costar Paul Reiser.

“The dream is to get to do it,” she told People in an interview about the re-boot earlier this year. “I have remained very, very close friends with Paul. Reboot, or no reboot we have lunch once a month. We really enjoy and care for each other. It was a very loving piece of work. We loved it. It would be fun to work on something that’s really about love. We’ll be older though — I hope people are prepared for that. I’m not prepared for it!”
